The ASC will review the overall academic and professional performance of each fourth year student in determining the recommendation for graduation. To be considered for graduation, a student must be judged to be in good standing with a GPA of 2.0 or better, have successfully completed all required educational experiences, the Clinical Skills Exams (CSEs), and passed USMLE Step 1 and USMLE Step 2 Clinical Knowledge (CK).  The UF COM Executive Committee grants final approval for graduation.


Students who have demonstrated outstanding achievements will be recommended for graduation with honors. Excellence of different types will be considered, such as superior academic work, outstanding student research, service or special achievement. The faculty will nominate students for graduation with special honors. Selection will be made by the College of Medicine’s Executive Committee.
